LGBTI Pride Quotes

gay pride quotes

“Every single courageous act of coming out chips away at the curse of homophobia. Most importantly it’s destroyed within yourself, and that one act creates the potential for its destruction where it exists in friends, family and society.” Anthony Venn-Brown

“I am always amazed how powerful that three letter word ‘gay’ can be. Many of us rejected it and wouldn’t even let the word come out of our mouth because of all the negative connotations attached to it…sin…. promiscuity….a ‘lifestyle’ etc etc. We would definitely never ever use it to label ourselves. We didn’t want to own it. When we break free and we use the word with empowerment, ownership and pride…..then we have moved from a world of denial to finally being real.” Anthony Venn-Brown 

gay pride quotes

“Homophobia and the closet are allies. Like an unhealthy co-dependent relationship, they need each other to survive. One plays the victim living in fear and shame while the other plays the persecutor policing what is ‘normal’. The only way to dismantle homophobia is for every gay man and lesbian in the world to come out and live authentic lives. Once they realise how normal we are and see themselves in us….the controversy is over.”  Anthony Venn-Brown

‘If you’re not out and proud, you’re missing out on the best month of the year. Don’t spend another year hiding in a closet of fear and shame. You don’t have forever, you deserve better and your tribe is waiting to welcome you home.’   Anthony Venn-Brown
